worst of the weather from it. “Trust you to want to bring us here
in this weather!” he muttered as he turned to the younger man.

some peace and quiet.” He shrugged handing his cloak to Laila who
took everyone else’s cloaks and hurried to hang them up too dry.
looked back out the still open door as a few of the servants tried
to calm the horses and bring in the luggage. Snow swirled around
them in big fat flakes that dashed this way and that as the wind
carried them where it wanted. Even the tracks they had made to get
into the small mansion were now fading in all the snow.

was thankful they had got here in time before they were stuck out in
the storm that threatened too take any fools soul if they dared to

supplies they would need for this holiday two days sooner, they
would also have aired the house a little.

the short years Noir had seemed to calm down a little, he still had
his mean sarcastic side, but Florian had seen it less and less as
their friendship had grown; until now, when he was quite happy to
spend time in the others company even miss it when Noir wasn’t
there. He didn’t even mind the stealing anymore, and had come to
find the amusement in it.

Florian smiled at him, “I’m perfectly alright, Noir, stop

the newly decorated room, covered in deep red velvet and gold. He

been a long one to get out here into the back and beyond of Paris.

Florian’s shoulders, “You’re burning up! Why didn’t you tell

eyes lingered on the light white scares that he himself had put on
Florian’s chest when they had first known each other, and with a
pang of guilt he quickly fumbled Florian into his long nightshirt.

knew even a sick and muddled minded Florian would not like it. But
there was really nothing else for it other than to call someone else
to do it. And right at that moment his possessiveness kicked in.

should it have been a nightmare?

against his own, then the image of Noir stood over him with his whip

first meeting. But this time he wasn’t laughing. There was a look
of concern in his eyes as he reached down with a free hand.

had remembered the pain Azura had inflicted on him, thee addiction,
the rap and finally the pain of withdrawal that lingered long after
the original abuse. One giant crystal blue eye seemed to engulf him
as he was tossed about in its depths. He was screaming but there was
no sound, Just the pain and the memories of cold hands upon him,
touching him where no one had before. Where the hands had no right
to touch but he had no will to stop it, he couldn’t fight, leaving
him felling soiled and filthy.
tried to scream again, to turn away from the all consuming blue that
burned his skin.
when he thought he would die from this torture a cool dark cloak
seemed to enfold him, it smelled of cigar smoke and something
deeper, something that spoke silent words of safety, of protection,
of finally belonging somewhere where he was wanted, letting him know
that nothing could harm him anymore, and if it did then this
presence would be there to make it all better, to take away all his

could help but sigh in relief as he managed to sit up despite the
pounding in his head. Then he noticed that one of Noir’s best
Arabian dress robs covered him. He felt the soft dark material
between his fingers, then looked up for an explanation.
just chuckled as he placed the bed tray over Florian’s legs,
ignoring the fact that the trays legs were straining the thin
material. Then Noir sat down on the bed to watch him eat as he
explained. “You were moaning and crying out in your sleep.” He

very rare books that he had been moaning he couldn’t get for
months. He had smiled so softly after the original shock.

cover, then he had gasped and frowned more as he looked back up at
him. Closing the book.

else trying to guess the next clue. Maybe he was being too forwards?
Maybe Noir was just teasing him with the stolen kisses and hugs.
cursed himself, he shouldn’t have written that note, but then he
remembered as if through a dream, Noir’s hands on him two nights
ago as he had undressed him. Some how at the time it had felt so
right, so perfect. Then the kiss, Noir hadn’t pressed for more
than just lips and Florian found that more passionate than anything
else he had ever experienced in his life, and the fact that Noir had
not pressed further when he had been quite willing for anything from
the younger man had been so sweet. But the memory also drove daggers
of doubt into the dream. Maybe he hadn’t gone further because he
had never wanted too…?

It was better than the uncomfortable silence that was now stretching

little account book years ago.” His smile broadened. “I always
thought it was strange that my mother must have died before that
cheque was ever cashed…” He razed an eyebrow. “And when I went
to the bank they told me that the cheque in question was indeed
stopped by the other party.”
gasped as he stared at the other man, for years he had played out
this little plot of slave and master, thinking that he had been so
clever in keeping the fact from Florian. “you never said
anything…” He whispered. Afraid now for what was to come, was
this it, did Florian’s little note just mean that he wasn’t
going to embarrass him infront of the others? That he now knew he
had no hold over him and he was going to leave?

amethyst eyes that were now filling with unshed tears. He felt his
own throat constrict with emotions.

Can you at least tell me that?”

answer. “I have a thing for waifs and strafes… “, he grinned,
after all, every member of his household had nowhere else to go,
either by choice of necessity. He saw the frown starting on
Florian’s brow and continued. “Look… To be honest, I don’t

something I wasn’t ready to realize back then… and then when
your mother died and your Uncle and Aunt betrayed you to the police
